The Symfuhny Showdown was a huge tournament that only rewarded the best of the best as no one outside of the top three got to touch the prize pool.
Team Rated, which included Mayappo and Ottereyes, came out and obliterated the playing field with 169.74 points. This was thanks to the team’s 83 kills over the course of the five games as well as securing a top-5 placement in each game. Their placings gave them a 1.7 multiplier for each round. They took home $27,000 of the prize pool.
While the battle for first wasn’t much of a fight, Team JoeWo and Team ScummN were in an intense race for third place. This was important as only the top three would take home cash from this event.
The final game was looking good for ScummN’s squad to rally enough points, but they got killed by a player using Dead Silence. However, Dead Silence was banned from the tournament and instead of a full replay of the map, the team that killed ScummN and company just lost points, while ScummN and company didn’t get another chance to earn any. UnRationaL was very unhappy with the ruling and took his frustration to Twitter.
Lose out on $5,000 because someone deady pushes us and kills two of us there’s gotta be something done other then just punishing the morons that don’t know deady is banned lost out on third by two points shit is so dumb man

While Rated’s team headlined the event with one of the more dominating wins, there were highlights from the start. A clear bright spot was in Game 1, when FaZe Booya clutched an improbable game-winning gunfight to the delight of his trio.

But there was also even more controversy, like when Team YKT Deleo’s player got banned in the middle of the tournament. After winning a Gulag against SuperEvan, DenxH shot his body which led to people hate raiding his teammate’s stream.
DenxH’s teammate, Jaay read a homophobic slur that was used in his chat, which led to DenxH getting banned on Twitch and the tournament. His team would go on to finish 27th out of 39 teams.
